M-Path: A Conversational System for the Empathic Virtual Agent
Conference Proceedings: Biologically Inspired Cognitive Architectures Meeting, August 15, 2019 2019

The design goal of this project was to develop avatars and virtual communities where the participants sense a tele-presence – that they are really there in the virtual space with other people. This collective sense of “being-there” does not happen over the phone or with teleconferencing; it is a new and emerging phenomenon, unique to 3D virtual communities.
